Swedish music from the 60s
Boogaloo Baby - Jerry Williams - 1969 Sonet
The swedish rock’n roll artist Jerry Williams made a whole record with soul covers in 1968 and in 1969 he released his quite happy soul song Keep On. The B-side is a cover of the famous J.J. Jackson song Boogaloo Baby. This is a great version and would speak to both mods and soulies. But is it as good as the original version or is it better?
The band backing Jerry Williams on this record is Lars Samuelson’s Dynamite Brass. In 1969 they released a self titled album with a lot of great latin, jazz dance and soul tunes.
